Many people make our museum a great place – scientists, teachers, builders, designers, artists, accountants, fundraisers, students, collectors, donors and more. But one of the most important people that make HMNS great is YOU.

HMNS is a nonprofit. And like any nonprofit, it takes a lot of support to help keep our doors open. The museum is fortunate to bring in revenue through things like ticket sales, gift shop sales, summer camp tuition and other fees. In fact, about 80% of our annual budget is earned or contributed revenue. But we depend on the community, our partners, visitors, donors, parents and friends to help with the rest. Our museum only takes a miniscule amount of government funding (from the city of Houston) so it’s on us to sustain programming and provide services through contributions. There is always a need.

Your support of our museum is our most important asset. Even a dollar helps and all gifts are important. From the child who donates everything in her piggy bank to the donors whose names grace our walls, each gift is hugely meaningful. And it’s gratifying to know that because of that gift – or any gift – the museum has resonated with you in some way. Something we do makes you happy or interests you or your children or maybe you just think it’s important for people to see or learn about science and its impact in the world in which we all share/live.

We protect your gifts, we use them wisely, and we genuinely need your support. On Giving Tuesday and any day you feel inclined to support HMNS please know that we welcome and value your gifts and all of us will do our best to continue to earn your confidence in what we do and what we offer.
